    Dan and family,
    We are so sorry for the loss of your wife, Jenny. We extend our deepest sympathy to all of the family. You and my parents were neighbors on 5th Ave. South, when I was very young. You and my dad remained long time friends over the years. He sure appreciated having you and your mom Bessie as neighbors. Again, sorry for your loss, and God bless! Irvin Weitzel family, Jeff & Sharon, and Linda Graf
